SDCC 2015: ‘The Strain’ Panel & Gag Video!
  |  @   |  

The Strain had their panel on the last day of San Diego Comic-Con, but don’t worry, there were plenty of fans lined up for them. FX had set up a “Survive The Strain” virtual reality experience, along with the AHS Hotel, and a TBX Forest. The panel included creator Guillermo del Toro who showed 2 tiny prologue clips to fans (one apparently involving getting fed worms – gross!), plus a gag video where Thomas Eichorst (Richard Sammel) turns his dungeon into an Air BnB, and ends up trying to put a crib/playpen together. Besides Sammel, some of the other cast members at the panel were Kevin Durand (Vasiliy Fet), Ruta Gedmintas (Dutch Velders), Miguel Gomez (Augustin ‘Gus’ Elizalde), Natalie Brown (Kelly Goodweather), David Bradley (Abraham Setrakian), and Mia Maestro (Nora Martinez).

Watch the gag video and the tweet that shows how Guillermo del Toro surprised fans below.

Natalie Brown’s 15 seconds gives a hint for season 2. Kevin Durand tells what was fun for him at Comic-Con. And check out how the VR experience was for some fans.


The AirBnB video is just hilarious. It starts with the chain creaking and a painful scream. Then in walks Eichorst with a guest and a rolling carryon.

“Things with the Master didn’t work out as planned.”

Just watch it. It is fantastic. He tries to really sell his business. The best is what someone draws in the guestbook.

The Strain airs Sundays at 10pm ET on FX.
